Copra, cottonseed, palm kernel, peanut, soybean, sunflower seed, and rapeseed are major oil seeds used for extraction of vegetable oil. Rapeseed has higher oil content than other oil seeds, and is thus cultivated for the extraction of vegetable oil for household and industrial purposes, and feedstock for bio-fuel production. Rapeseed contains 40% oil, and is usually extracted in by pre-pressing or by solvent extraction. The presence of vitamin E and antioxidants in rapeseed oil reduces scar tissues and repairs damaged hair and skin conditions such as itching, eczema, and acnes, thus finding application in manufacturing of wide varieties of cosmetic and personal care products.

Europe accounts for more the three-fifths share of the rapeseed oil produced to manufacture bio-diesel. Thus, increase in consumption of rapeseed oil as a feedstock for bio-fuel is expected to drive the market growth. The nutritional and health benefits associated with rapeseed oil have led to its evolution in the U.S., China, and India. However, high prices of rapeseed oil in these countries makes it uncompetitive for biodiesel production. Moreover, uncertainty in climatic conditions resulting in fluctuation of rapeseed prices, lower domestic production, and increase in compaction from other oil seeds, such as soybean and palm kernel, for producing vegetable oil may restraint the market growth.
